Le motif mythologique de l. a. métamorphose n'est pas seulement un élément thématique des œuvres, mais un principe poétique et esthétique fondamental témoignant de leur size autoréflexive et processuelle. De Kafka à Dada, de Thomas Mann à Claude Simon, des poètes baroques à Paul Celan, los angeles métamorphose est à l. a. fois building d’un sens et symptôme de son altération. Elle déplace l’attention de l’œuvre achevée au processus créateur, de los angeles forme proprement dite aux forces qui lui donnent lieu – et qui, aussi, l. a. menacent et l. a. déstabilisent. Son enjeu n’est pas pour autant, comme on dit, « purement formel » : il y va du statut du sujet, de son unité et de son autonomie, de l. a. nature de son rapport au monde. Une réflexion que los angeles littérature produit bien plus qu’elle ne l. a. reproduit.
